Tour route

1. Matera

Individual arrival. For millennia, the city's inhabitants dug their homes into the steep mountain slopes, deep into the soft limestone, a characteristic honey-colored stone. These cave settlements, the "Sassi", are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

2. Matera - Alberobello (70 km)

Today you cycle to the famous trulli, which once served as residential and warehouse buildings. Alberobello is built on two hills. The trulli zone on the western hill is divided into two districts: Monti and Aia Piccola.

3. Alberobello - Ostuni (55 km)

It goes through beautiful landscapes to Ostuni, a jewel of architecture. Ostuni is also known as the "White City" because of its white walls and houses.

4. Ostuni - Lecce - Gallipoli (70 km by train + 50 km by bike)

Short train transfer to Lecce and a few kilometers by bike in the city and then you immerse yourself in the rural area of ​​Salento. At the end you will reach the Ionian coast and Gallipoli.

5. Gallipoli - Santa Maria di Leuca (50 km)

The city of Santa Maria di Leuca got its name from ancient Greek sailors. When they arrived, the city was brightly lit by the sun, which is why they named it "Leukos" (= white).

6. Santa Maria di Leuca - Otranto (50 km)

To the north, along the Adriatic coast to Otranto. This is the most easterly point of Italy, and you can visit the imposing cathedral and the great Aragonese castle here.

7. Otranto - Lecce (55 km)

You will reach Lecce along the Alumini Lakes. Thanks to its many baroque buildings, the place bears the second name "Florence of the South". You will be impressed by the artistic ornaments.

8. Lecce

Departure after breakfast.

For organizational reasons, due to the weather situation or according to the regulations of the local authorities, some changes in the course of the tour may occur before and / or during the holiday. For example, along the route you can find diversions due to construction work that we cannot foresee; please follow the instructions on site.


Easy to moderate: some days flat, others more hilly. Suitable for everyone who already has a bit of cycling experience and is in a normal condition.


We have carefully selected all the hotels on the tour for you. Thanks to the description in the road book, the hotels are easy to reach from the bike path and are close to the main sights of the cities. You stay in 3/4 * hotels (in Alberobello sometimes a typical "hotel village" called "Trulli").

All rooms are equipped with toilet and air conditioning. There is no air conditioning in the trulli because they use an ancient method of thermal insulation, typical of their design.
